Substance Abuse Board Update

Drug Bust

Dothan City Commissioners have voted to suspend funding to the Dothan-Houston County Substance Abuse Partnership.

The decision to cut funds came after an audit, which reportedly pointed out areas that needed to be investigated such as alleged misappropriations of funds and fraud.

In two weeks, the substance abuse board is expected to make a presentation on the steps they've taken to correct their financial problems.

After that report, the city commission will decide whether their funding will be reinstated.

The Houston County Commission voted to cut funding to the partnership on Monday night at their commission meeting.
